Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, so introducing another popular song that got very quickly reused in a subsequent film. This raunchy item number surprised everyone when it came out for the first time. The film is ‘Inkaar’ from 1977. It was cops and robbers story – B-grade cinema but it was done very professionally, giving some true insight into the normal working of the police force.

This song, which is performed by Helen in the film, became very popular in its time. And the wonder part of this song was / is the voice that has rendered it. The voice is of Usha Mangeshkar. One does not hear her voice in item numbers. Maybe part of a twin dance duet singing. But not an out and out item song. Somehow the selection of his voice for the setting clicked absolutely well. The setting of the song in the original film is a roadside tavern – a desi daaru ka adda. A counter for selling liquor and some chairs and tables for the clients to enjoy their glass that cheers. The dancer, Helen, is very much in the native Maharashtrian attire, wearing the dhoti in the typical lavangi style. The scenario, the persona – the singing voice suited everything to a T.

Fast forward to 1984. The film is ‘Andar Baahar’. This is another cops and robbers tale. Jackie Shroff is a police inspector who has lost his senior partner (role played by Parikshit Sahni) to the bullets of criminals. He vows revenge, and for that he takes permission to pull out a jailed criminal (role played by Anil Kapoor), and enrolls him as his partner, because he can identify the gangster boss. Anil Kapoor, who is a hardened criminal otherwise, has a difficult time adjusting to a role on the other side of the law. So within the very first one or two days, taking advantage of his newly given freedom, he disappears from Jackie Shroff’s home. Jackie is worried, on many counts, and sets out to search for him. Following his instincts he goes to the city red light area and his hunch is proved correct. Anil Kapoor is in a binge of drink and dance with a dancing girl of the area, role played by Jaishree T. And the song that is used in this scene is the iconic Usha Mangeshkar number, repeated from the film ‘Inkaar’.

The reuse is a direct replay without re-recording. The song duration is shorter because only one stanza of the song is utilized. Once again, being a repeat song, this does not appear in the Geet Kosh listings for the latter film. I have retained the credits for the song, from the original film – Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan. Incidentally the music director for the latter film is RD Burman.

So another popular song reused in a later film. I accidentally ran into this song, as I was searching for another video clip to complete another post. The song “Hum Ko To Yaari Se Matlab Hai” from film ‘Andar Baahar’ has a sad version that was not getting located. I played thru the film in fast forward mode. It was a short clip but I was able to locate it. In the process, the bonus was the discovery of this repeat song that would have otherwise not been located, as it is not listed. A good chance discovery.

Song –  Tu..u..u Mungdaa, Mungdaa Main Gud Ki Dhali  (Andar Baahar) (1984) Singer – Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

mangtaa hai to aa jaa rasiyaa
naahin to main ye chali

aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
aapas ki chaal dekhe so lut jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye
tu jis pe naina daal haathon se pyaala satak jaaye

kaisa mulga hai re sharmila
tujhse to mulgi bhali
kaisa mulga hai re sharmila

Hullo Atuldom

7th August- remembrance day of Gulshan Kumar Mehta. It seems like just recently that my husband read the news of his demise from the morning papers and asked me who it was? I just rattled out a list of songs that were written by him and he was surprised that almost all the songs that I mentioned he knew he had heard but without knowing who had written it or other details about the song. Today is this Gulshan Kumar Mehta’s 11th anniversary. He is known popularly as Gulshan Bawra.

The name “Baawra” was goven to him by distributor Shantilal Dave who could not believe that the then 19 year old “Baawra” could write such meaningful lyrics. And this moniker “Baawra” stuck.

As I sat to write this post I found a link on youtube that gave me 45 minutes of Gulshan Bawra songs under the title “Best of Gulshan Bawra” and contained the following songs: tumhe-yaad-hogaa; Aapse humko bicchde huye ek zamaana beet gaya; Hamne jo dekhe sapne; Waada karle saajna tere bina main na rahoon; Le chal le chal mere jeewan saathhi; Jeewan ke har mod pe mil jaayenge hamsafar; Tumko mere dil ne pukaara hai; Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi.

Of the 10 songs in that list I didn’t know only two:- “dil sambhaale sambhalta nahin” and “beete hue din kuch aise hi hain”. But of course all the 10 are present on our blog. And 141 out of the 380 odd songs that he has written, are present in the blog. His first outing in movies was in the 1959 movie “Satta Bazaar” (1959) with the classic ‘tumhe yaad hoga kabhi hum mile the’. His career spanned almost four decades and we have a range of songs to entertain ys from the patriotic Aaj hai do october ka din and ‘mere desh ki dharti’; melodiously romantic ‘chaand ko kya maloom’ and funnily romantic ‘peenewaalon ko peene ka bahana chahiye’. His ‘dukki pe dukki ho’ is as popular as ‘dilbar mere kab tak mujhe’. And I remember having seen him on screen lip syncing ‘deewane hai deewano ko na darr chahiye’ and also enjoying the party in ‘Parivaar’ when Nanda sang ‘aaj hai do october ka din’. He was there on screen in Manoj Kumar directed ‘Upkaar’ as the halwai’s son. His songs have been put to music by Kalyanji Anandji, R D Burman, Shankar Jaikishan. He was awarded the best lyricist Filmfare award for “mere desh ki dharti” and “yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi” which also topped that years Binaca Geetmala.

Thinking of this lyricist on his anniversary with a song from the 1984 release “Andar Baahar”. 1984 was when I had discovered the new crop of good looking actors Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol etc. They looked good and danced/ acted reasonably well too. So I could request my dad to see this movie. He was also a fan of movies which were of the ‘masala’ genre and had some good songs for added pleasure and relaxation. I could never convince him to see any of the Arty movies, but that is another story.

“Andar Baahar” was a movie produced by Romu Sippy and directed by Raj N. Sippy. It had a cast of Jackie Shroff- Anil Kapoor- Parikshit Sahni- Anita Raaj- Danny. This was Moon Moon Sen’s Hindi debut (one of the reasons my dad agreed to come for the movie, he wanted to see Suchitra Sen’s daughter).

The movie had a very simple storyline:- A cop-n-crook story. The crooks led by Danny crack the safe of a bank, and one of them turns greedy and tries to shoot the others out of his way. The sound gets cop Ajay Sahni (Parikshat Sahni) to the spot and one of the team of crooks runs away with the loot. Danny escapes from prison and threatens the absconding Gulshan Grover of killing his sister if he doesn’t return the loot. Gulshan squeals to the cops and inspector Ajay and his friend Ravi Khanna (Jackie) reach the spot. Only this time, in the operations, inspector Ajay is fatally wounded and now inspector Ravi seeks vengeance. With the permission of the commissioner he brings the wounded crook Raja (Anil Kapoor), who is still in his custody, to help him track Shera (Danny) Gulshan etc and bring the movie to a close. In the process Ravi Khanna finds a friend in Raja who takes Ajay’s place in his life.

Now since there are friends in the movie it is mandatory to have a song where the heroes proclaim their love for each other. This is sung by Shailendra Singh and Suresh Wadkar. R D Burman is the music composer. The song has a stamp of RD all over it:- great opening piece and in between the mukhda and antara. We can also hear the harmonica (popularly called mouth organ) through the song.

Incidentally it also happens to be Suresh Wadkar’s 65th birthday. He has been active since 1977 – ‘Paheli’ and ‘Gaman’ (1978). His voice was different from the reigning voices of that time. He also is trained in classical music which is evident in “Saanjh Dhale Gagan Taley” and his numerous songs which need a clear voice at high pitch. We have 71 songs of his on the blog. We have a lot more songs out there for us to learn the range that he can sing in. For today we shall hear him here in this song and wish him a very Happy Birthday.

N.B.: There is a sad version to this song, video of which I am unable to locate.

Blog Day :

4400 Post No. : 15782

Today (4 August 2020) is the 91st birth anniversary of Kishore Kumar (4 August 1929- 13 october 1987). And incidentally, today is the 4400th day for the blog !

Three articles from three regulars discussing Kishore Kumar have already appeared on the blog today. It is interesting to note that all the three regulars decided to discuss three songs from the decade of 1980s.

The golden era of HFM, which began in 1949, ended in 1980. People who lived through the golden era can notice a palpable lack of overall quality in HFM after 1980. There were quite a few reasons for that. I have given this matter some thought and I have come up with some interesting observations. I will use those observations some other time in some other article. Here I will mention it in brief that the golden era of HFM began when Indian classical base (melody based) was wedded with western classical base (symphony based). This marriage, which gave us the best of both the worlds, got dissolved in 1980. Western symphony was replaced by western cacophony while lyrics of the songs were dispensed with.

Another reason was gradual demise of the doyens of HFM maestroes. Shailendra (1966), Roshan (1968), Shakeel Badayuni (1970), Jaikishan (1971), Geeta Dutt (1972), Madan Mohan , Vasant Desai, S D Burman (all 1975), Mukesh (1976) and Rafi (1980) left the scene one after the other creating big voids. With the demise of Rafi on 31 july 1980, the HFM golden era literally ended.

If we still have a few songs worth listening to in 1980s, then they are invariably the creations of those who began their careers during the golden era and they had the musical wherewithals to create quality music. It was the old guard that kept creating good music in 1980s.

One will notice that majority of memorable songs of 1980s were sung by old guard, viz Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. This state of affairs continued till late 1980s when Kishore Kumar died in 1987. R D Burman, who was sticking to Kishore Kumar confided in Amit Kumar that his music was unlikely to remain the same with the absence of Kishore Kumar.

Ironically, the music director who was the most responsible for the demise of HFM golden era, viz Bappi Lahiri, was also the music director who created the most number of memorable songs post 1980s. And no prizes for guessing who were the singers in these songs. When Bappi Lahiri was not creating forgettable (but saleable) disco numbers, he was also creating golden era quality songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Unlike the golden era hit songs, these 1980s era songs were light on lyrics, making them chaalu songs. Still, these songs became popular because the singers could carry off these songs with inane lyrics with aplomb.

There are several Bappi Lahiri chaalu songs that Kishore Kumar turned into timeless classics. Some examples are movies like “Namakhalaal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984), “Aaj Ka Arjun”(1990). Incidentally , all these songs had Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles.

Then there were Jeetendra starrers where the lyrics were of even more “Chaalu” variery. But Kishore Kumar turned even those songs into classics. In these songs he often had the company of Asha Bhonsle, who could be regarded as his female version among playback singers, as far as singing versatility was concerned.

As a tribute to Kishore Kumar, here is the title song of “Tohfa”(1984). This movie was produced by D Ramanaidu and directed by K Raghvendra Rao for Suresh Productions, Madras. This archtypical Madrasi movie (Hindi remake) of 1980s had Jeetendra, JayaPrada, Sridevi, Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Mohan Choti, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Jayshree T, Master Rinku etc in it, with friendly appearance by Asrani.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Jayaprada and Jeetendra. They are seen prancing, with Saris of all varieties forming the background as well as the prop. Quite an imaginative picturisation.

And as observed earlier, the song on its own is nothing much to write home about. Still, this is one of those songs that had stood the test of time and it is still regarded as one of the popular songs of its era. Much of the credit for this has to go to the singers, viz Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Just like R D Burman’s music suffered after the demise of Kishore Kumar, bappi Lahiri’s music too failed to reach the same heights in the absence of Kishore Kumar’s vocals. It shows the calibre of Kishore Kumar’s singing abilities who with his Midas touch could convert a seemingly mediocre song into a timeless classic.

Personally, I found the music of 1980s bearably enjoyable, mainly because of songs like this. And unsurprisingly, most such songs had the voice of Kishore Kumar in them.

Enjoy this song. This song demostrates that one can act silly and it can be still enjoyable and fun for all concerned, provided you have the calibre to carry it off.

If there was a category like ‘post inspired by fellow Atulite’ or ‘post inspired by Atulite WA group chat’, this post would have been included under that category. This past Sunday there was a discussion between me and Peevesie’s Mom ji regarding the theme of the ‘Rangoli’ this week, which was Jaya Bhaduri/Bachchan, and so I messaged to her that I was expecting a post from her. Instead, she asked me that even I can do a post. And she also pointed out the birth anniversary of actor Jeetendra (and so if there was a song of Jaya Bachchan and Jeetendra, it would have been suitable for the post).

But then, few days back I myself had sent a song to Atul ji requesting to post it on the birth anniversary of another Jaya i.e. Jayaprada whose birth anniversary was on 3rd April. And that thought inspired (? 😊) me – Yes, I can do this post combining the anniversaries of both Jayaprada and Jeetendra – and yes, this song, which I liked, was already there and the film has not made a debut on the blog. And one more purpose was getting achieved i.e. to introduce ‘movie with the same title’ on the blog. So here is a song from ‘Tohfa’ (1984). One movie with the same title ‘Tohfa’ was released in 1947 and this movie has already been represented on the blog with seven songs covered out of total ten songs in it.

The 1984 film ‘Tohfa’ was directed by K Raghavendra Rao for Suresh Productions, Madras. It was produced by D Rama Naidu. The star cast includes Jeetendra, Sridevi, Jayaprada, Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Mohan Choti, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Jayshree T, Master Rinku and others. Asrani makes a friendly appearance in this movie.

Dialogues for this movie are written by Kader Khan and editing of this movie was done by KA Marthand. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 21.01.1984.

The film has five songs (including one two-part song). Lyrics are written by Indeevar. Music of this movie is composed by Bappi Lahiri. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and SP Balasubramaniam have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar and lip syncing it on screen are Jeetendra and Jayaprada respectively.  Also seen in the picturization of this song is Master Rinku who gets to lip sync few lines in between the song in the voice not credited in the movie titles and also not mentioned in HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985).

3rd April was actress Jayaprada’s fifty eighth (born on 03.04.1962) birth anniversary and here on the blog we are wishing her a belated Happy Birthday and a happy, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Also, Jeetendra celebrates his seventy-eighth birth anniversary today on 7th April (born on 07.04.1942) and we wish him too a very Happy Birthday today and a happy, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Now coming back to 1984. This year, Jeetendra and Jayaprada were seen together in the following movies;

S No Movie Name Music Director Passed by Censor Board
1 Haisiyat Bappi Lahiri 10.08.1984
2 Maqsad Bappi Lahiri 30.04.1984
3 Tohfaa Bappi Lahiri 21.01.1984

If we consider the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of 1984 as many as four songs from the movie ‘Tohfa’ were represented there. Today’s song ranked at number twenty-seven, while other songs ranked at number 3 – “Pyar Ka Tohfa Tera, Bana Hai Jeevan Mera” (title song), number 4 was “Ek Aankh Maaroon To”, and number twenty-six was “Gori Tere Ang Ang Mein’.

And if we consider movies with music composed by Bappi Lahiri, the annual list Binaca Geetmala of 1984, contained as many as eight movies – ‘Sharaabi’, ‘Tohfaa’, ‘Mawaali (1983)’, ‘Maqsad’, ‘Haisiyat’, ‘Wanted’, ‘Kaamyaab’, and ‘Qaidi’.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song, which I like most from this movie. In the movie, the second stanza of the song is repeated when Jayaprada dies, leaving a child behind to Sridevi and Jeetendra also present there.

With this song ‘Tohfa’ (1984) makes its debut on the blog.

Editor’s note:- This song happens to be the 200th duet of Lata and Kishore Kumar in the blog.

ये तो कहो जीवन के सफ़र की
आखरी आरज़ू क्या है
तुझसे पहले मैं उठ जाऊं
मैंने ये सोचा है
अगले जनम में॰ ॰ ॰
दोनों मिलेंगे॰ ॰ ॰
अपना ये वादा है
अपना ये वादा है
अलबेला मौसम
कहता है स्वागतम
अलबेला मौसम
कहता है स्वागतम

महकी क्यूँ गली गली
खिली क्यूँ कलि कलि
क्या कहती है हवा

तुझे हर ख़ुशी मिले
लम्बी ज़िन्दगी मिले
देती है ये दुआ

अलबेला मौसम
कहता है स्वागतम
अलबेला मौसम
कहता है स्वागतम

Song-Aaj ki aawaaz jaag ae insaan (Aaj Ki Aawaaz)(1984) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Hasan Kamaal, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Aaj ki aawaaz
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Zindagi kitni
Behifaazat hai
Kal bhi aayegaa
Kya jamaanat hai
Din pareshan hai raat hai hairaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Dar ke saaye mein
Gar jawaan hongi
Ye nayee naslen kal kahan hongi
Hosh me aa ja ab to aye nadaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Kya nagar hai ye
Kaisi basti hai
Ya to mitti se jaan sasti hai
Zindagi mushkil maut hai aasaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

Dekh ghar aangan loot nahi jaayen
Pyaar ke rishtey chhut nahi jaayen
Kal bachane ka aaj hi kar dhyaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz jaag aye insaan
Waqt kehta hai waqt ko pehchaan
Aaj ki aawaaz

“Phulwaari”(1984) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Mukul Dutt for Rajshree Productions. The movie had Shashi Puri, Debashree Roy, Rakesh Bedi, Iftekhar, inesh Hingoo, Ashok Saraf, Mohan Choti, Pallavi Dutt(Introducing), Benjamin Gilani, Jankidas, Viju Khote, Sulochana Latkar, Mehmood Junior, Ram Mohan, Kumari Naaz, Jayashre.T., Shivraj, Rajinder Nath, Kishore Kapoor, Pardesi, Chaand, Vinod Chauhan etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Phulwaari”(1984) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Haimanti Shukla, Yesudas and chorus. Govind Moonis is the lyricist. Music is composed by Raj Kamal.

The song is picturised on Debashree Roy, Shashi Puri and Kishore Kapoor. It is a situation of a lady making her beloved jealous by making advances on another man. I can identify Debashree Roy, but I have no idea who is Shashi Puri and who is Kishore Kapoor in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Jaagir”(1984) was produced and directed by Pramod Chakraborty for Pramod Films, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman, Mithun Chakraborty, Shoma Anand, Amrish Puri, Preeti Sapru, Danny Denzongpa, Ranjeet, Beena Bannerjee, Azad, Bharat Bhushan, Birbal, R.S.Chopra, Bob Christo, Tarun Ghosh, Iftekhar, Kamal Kapoor, Praveen Kumar, Pran, Subroto Mahapatra, Baby Pinky, Sujeet Kumar, Mac Mohan, Master Ravi, Amol Sen, Asit Sen, Sunder Taneja, Ashalata Wabgaonkar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it.

One of these songs was a new year song. Today (1 january 2020) is an ideal occasion to cover this song.

So here is this new year song from “Jaagir”(1984). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a stage dance performance on Zeenat Aman, Dharmendra etc. House full audience, including Raj Kishore, Subroto Mahapatra, Amrish Puri, Shoma Anand, Ranjeet, Preeti Sapru, Praveen Kumar,Sunder Taneja(anouncer) are present on the occasion. Amrish Puri and Ranjeet receive call (on landline phone, brought to them on their chairs) that their nefarious business has been foiled and the main person was donning an orange boiler suit. And Ranjeet recalls having seen this boiler suited man onstage. So he obviously plans his next move as soon as the song finishes. 🙂 Our villains never act till the song performance is over !

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy new year 2020. 2020 has a nice sring about it, especially because we are already familiar with 2020 format of cricket :). Let us hope that this year will see quick fire action in our lives and also in the blog, similar to the action that we are used to seeing in a 2020 game of cricket.

With this song, “Jaagir”(1984) makes its debut in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom
December is filled with birthdays of superstars and super actors. We began the month remembering Dev Anand, birthdays of Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, & Dilip Kumar followed. Today is the 69th birthday of Rajnikanth, the darling of the masses in South India, he was also decently successful in Bollywood.

He is an actor who started out portraying negative characters and near-bit roles much like Shatrughan Sinha of Bollywood. He has worked his way up the ranks to superstardom and his best period began with “Billa” (1980) and he hasn’t left the hearts and minds of his fans- much like his inspiration- he has admitted many-a-times that he is a fan of Amitabh Bachchan. And after being cast in roles of antagonist from 1975-77 in Tamil and Telugu 1978 saw the release of “Shankar Salim Simon” which was a remake of Manmohan Desai’s “Amar Akbar Anthony”; this was followed by remakes of “Majboor”, “Trishul”, “Deewar”, “Namak Halal”, “Don” (Billa was its remake), “Lawaaris” etc and I seem to have seen most of these. I would love to hear the feelings he had when he got to act with his inspiration Big B in his debut Hindi movie- “Andha Kanoon” (incidentally this too was remade in Tamil but with Vijaykanth acting the role played by Rajni in the Hindi version). We had many Hindi movies in the 80s which were remakes of Rajni’s south Indian originals.
I
His super successful Tamil movie “Moondru Mugam” meaning three-faces was made as “John Jani Janardhan” in with Rati Agnihotri and Poonam Dhillon as female leads. It was the story of an honest police officer John Mendez (Rajnikanth as father) who lives a middle-class lifestyle with his wife, Cheryl (Poonam Dhillon), and a maidservant, Fatimabi (Dulari). John busts a gang that makes illicit liquor and holds them in a cell, bringing him into confrontation with their leader, Gajanand ‘Gajju’ (Kadar Khan), who goes to threaten John, but is himself arrested and sentenced. When he is acquitted, he decides to avenge his humiliation by entrapping John and killing him. Cheryl gives birth to twin sons and passes away. A rich childless couple, Brijmohan Gupta (Utpal Dutt) adopts one of the twins and names him Janardhan (Rajnikanth -son number 1), while the second is named Jani (Rajnikanth son number 2) and lives with Fatimabi. Twenty-five years later, Janardhan is an American-returned young man, in love with Madhu (Rati Agnihotri). On his birthday party he comes face to face with a man named Gopaldas (played by south actor Thyagarajan), and his entire personality changes as he is taken over by the vengeful spirit of John. Subsequently, Gopaldas is killed, and Janardhan is arrested and tried in Court. And then there is the usual climax when the brothers discover each other etc. (seen this movie a long time ago in Tamil not in Hindi)

Today on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday a song from “John Jani Janardhan” which had Laxmi-Pyare’s music and Anand Bakshi’s lyrics. S P Balasubramaniam and S Janaki have given playback for this lively number which has Rati matching Rajnikanth’s colourful T-shirts with her lovely white dresses.

Rati who made her debut into Hindi movies with “Ek Duje Ke Liye” opposite Kamal Hasan in 1981 turned a year on 10th December. She was Rajnikanth’s co-star in many south Indian movies but I think this was the only time she acted with him in Hindi. Here is wishing her too a very (belated) Happy Birthday.

First of all, my apologies for my infrequent appearances here. Even calling it a cameo is unfair to a cameo, because, to be honest, it is not even that. It is more like, a “blink and you miss” situation.

Anyway, here I am today, back with a post. The occasion is the Remembrance Day of someone very special to the Hindi film industry, and also to me. He has millions of fans around the world and is easily one of the legends of the industry.

I am talking about Kishore Kumar, of course.

I’ve written about Kishore Kumar many times in the past. And yet, when Avinash ji requested me to write a post for this occasion, I immediately agreed. Such is my love for Kishore Kumar that even if I repeat myself and bore my readers in the process 🙂 , I could not bring myself to say no.  🙂

The problem then was to get the required writing mood back. What they say about writing is very true. If you don’t write for an extended period of time, you gradually lose the ability to do so. That is why many writers practise their writing everyday, by writing at least a minimum number of words.

When I wrote to Avinash ji saying “Mere thoughts gather nahin ho rahe. I have lost the ability to write”, he replied “Aap Kishore Kumar ke gaane suniye aur din bhar sunte rahiye. Thoughts will come, I am sure.” 🙂

So I did listen to a few songs – predictably songs of ‘my’ era. “Khizaan Ke Phool”, “Jeevan Se Bhari Teri Aankhen”, “Teri Duniya Se”, “Hum Bewafa Hargiz Na The”, “O Mere Dil Ke Chain”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani” and a few others.

I think that might have helped a bit, because here I am.

Anyway, coming to Kishore Kumar.

The years just roll by – it is already 32 years since he left us.

He was just 58 at the time – far too young to go.

But like they say, it is not the years in your life that count, it is the life in your years.

And Kishore Kumar had plenty of life in his years.

No one will dispute that Kishore Kumar was the No.1 all-rounder in the industry. There have been a few others who have had multiple skills. Manoj Kumar was actor, writer, director, producer. Mehmood was also quite an all-rounder.

But Kishore was in a league of his own, because in each of his roles, he left a mark. Of course he is best-known as a singer, but even today many remember his acting, especially in comedy roles like in ‘Dilli Ka Thug’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’, ‘Half Ticket’ and many other films.

But there was so much more to Kishore Kumar than just comedy. And probably to prove this point, he produced and directed films like ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein’ (1964) and ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971). I was stunned when I saw both these films – they have tremendous depth and philosophy, uncommon for the times.

His versatility was not limited to singing, acting, producing and directing though. Kishore Kumar also composed music, for some of his films.  Like the two films mentioned above, whose songs are quite popular to this day. As are the songs of  ‘Jhumroo’ (1961).

This is why I call Kishore Kumar the Gary Sobers of the Hindi film industry. 🙂 He could take on any role, and make a success of it.

But beyond even his multifarious talents, there was Kishore the person. And even as a person, he is quite an inspiration for me. His attitude towards life is something I can only admire.

Those who worked with Kishore Kumar, especially Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, vouch  for his ability to enliven a recording session with his sense of humour, his cracking a joke or pulling someone’s leg. Some people are like this – never a dull moment with them around.

It is not as if Kishore didn’t have low moments, or tough times. Everyone has these – Kishore was no exception. But he never let this affect his professionalism. He was very clear about himself, his philosophy towards life – and he never allowed others to define it for him.

Like he said “Duniya samajhti hai main paagal hoon….main samajhta hoon duniya paagal hai”.

I think, whatever his conflicts with the world might have been, especially later in his life, he was at peace with himself. And that is most important for a human being. Like he told Lata Mangeshkar in an interview in the fag end of his career “I am quite happy”. He expressed a desire to run away from it all, and go to a place which was calling out to him.

Today, on his Remembrance Day, I feel Kishore Kumar found that place and left us in order to go there.

And left us with SUCH a treasure of songs and memories that we are indebted to him for life.

So thank you, thank you, thank you, Kishore Kumar for what you have given us. Speaking purely for myself, as someone who has been part of my life from my very early years, when I listened repeatedly to songs like “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani” and “Ye Shaam Mastaani” on the radio, your impact on my life cannot be described.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a totally new song for me. In fact I have never even heard of the film. Details, including lyrics of the song, have been sent to me by Avinash ji.

This is what he says :

“Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye-1984’ was directed by K.S. Sethumadhavan for ‘Tirupati Chitra Mandir, Bombay’. It was produced by Hastimal.

It had Rakhi Gulzar, Suresh Oberoi, Vijay Arora, Manmohan Krishan, CS Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Shobhha Khote, Birbal Raj, Raj Kishore, Rakesh Roshan, Tina Munim, Master Rinku, Shah Chaturvedi, Raghvaiyya, Santosh Kumar, Lata Kashmiri, Dolphin and others. Deepa and Ramu make a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.06.1984. However, the movie was re-certified by Censor on 15.12.1987 with a UA certificate (as mentioned in HFGK).

The movie has total seven songs, including the three-part song being presented today (as per HFGK Vol-VI 1981-1985) composed by Rajesh Roshan. HFGK mentions Rajesh Roshan as the lyricist for this movie and the same is mentioned on the vinyl cover of this movie available on online sources, which I guess is correct. (myswar.co also mentions the same). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Pankaj Udhas and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.”

This film, ‘Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye’ (1984), makes its debut entry on this blog today.

The song itself is amazing. I’d never heard it before, but when I heard it for the first time a few days ago, it touched my heart. It also suits this occasion, as it talks of a person who feels he is ready to move on.

Please do listen to this wonderful song. Quite a gem, it is, especially in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Thanks for the song, Avinash ji.

एक नदी थी प्यार कि
सारी दुनिया ब्योपार कि
एक नदी थी प्यार कि
सारी दुनिया ब्योपार कि ई
राह रोके अपनी खड़ी थी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए ए
उड़ते उड़ते प्यासे पंछी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए

ज़िन्दगी के ए बाकी थे कुछ लम्हे
शायद के हो मिलना फिर हमें
ज़िन्दगी के ए बाकी थे कुछ लम्हे
शायद के हो मिलना फिर हमें
मार डालेगी ये बेबसी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए ए
उड़ते उड़ते प्यासे पंछी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए
अरमां प्यासे छायी उदासी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए

भाग २

दूर जा रहे हैं
के नैना रो रहे हैं
दूर जा रहे हैं
के नैना रो रहे हैं
साँसों की ना टूटे लड़ी ई
प्यासे पंछी थक गए ए
उड़ते उड़ते प्यासे पंछी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए

भाग ३

हाथों ने हमेशा वार किया
कभी ना किसीको प्यार किया
हाथों ने हमेशा वार किया
कभी ना किसीको प्यार किया
नस नस में बसी बुज़दिली थी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए ए
उड़ते उड़ते प्यासे पंछी
प्यासे पंछी थक गए ए

Hullo Atuldom

The 80s was a period when there were a whole set of “Made in South” movies. Movies essentially remakes of popular and successful Telugu, Tamil and Kannada movies. Movies with nearly same formula- one hero and two heroines, both ladies loving the hero equally with the hero behaving courteously with one and loving the other passionately. To add further twist, the heroines will be sisters (as in Tohfa), childhood best friends (as in Raaste Pyar Ke), or meet accidentally and become good friends (as in Maang Bharo Sajna and Asha Jyoti).

All the movies would have good songs which used to be popular in the 80s and 90s but may have been forgotten since. The most important aspect of these movies used to be that one of the heroines would sacrifice her love or never reveal her love so that the other can lead a happy life with her partner/ husband etc. The hero in most of these South-made movies was Jeetendra and the heroines were mostly Rekha, Reena Roy, Shabana Azmi, Moushumi Chatterjee, Jaya Prada or Sridevi. Taking note of the success of Jeetendra in these movies Rajesh Khanna also acted in a few South-made movies.

Asha Jyoti was one of them. The movie had five songs with Anuradha Paudwal, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar as playback singers. Anjaan was the lyricist and Laxmi Pyare were the music directors. One song has been posted from the movie. In that post Atulji has speculated about the status of the relations between the main cast. I have seen this movie a long time back and here is the story of the movie, hope that it clears all speculations. 🙂

Asha Jyoti (1984) had Rajesh Khanna, Reena Roy and Rekha as the main cast. The film was directed by Dasari Narayana Rao, who had also directed Aaj Ka M.L.A. Ram Avtar with Khanna in the lead role and music was given by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film is remake of Telugu Movie Srivari Muchatlu (1981).

Ramesh Chander (Om Shivpuri), a businessman, asks his son Deepak (Rajesh Khanna), a musician, if he would marry his childhood friend Asha (Rekha), but Deepak keeps declining this idea. Deepak falls in love with one of his fans named Jyoti (Reena Roy), a dancer, and he informs his parents by telegram that he has chosen a girl. Deepak promises to pay off the debts owed by Jyoti’s father. But when Deepak reaches his home in Bombay (now Mumbai), he finds that Ramesh has committed suicide due to bankruptcy. Ramesh expresses his last wish that his second wife and her daughter be taken care of. Deepak is delayed in Bombay and is unable to return to Kashmir.

In Kashmir, Jyoti’s creditor asks her father for money, but Jyoti expresses her inability to pay, so the creditor warns Jyoti’s father she will be in grave trouble. When Deepak does arrive at Jyoti’s house, her father lies, saying that he has married her off to the creditor. Deepak is heartbroken and returns home.

Seth Badri Prasad (Madan Puri), a rich man and childhood friend of Ramesh, bails Deepak out from bankruptcy and gets Ramesh’s creditors to not to file suit against Deepak and to auction the bungalow that he would buy. Deepak feels indebted to Prasad. Badri Prasad had been forcing his friend Ramesh Chander to ask Deepak to marry Asha, daughter of Badri Prasad. After Deepak returns to Bombay, his mother suggests to him that he should now get settled in his life and bring some happiness in his life and so he marries Asha. During the wedding, Deepak observes a woman similar to Jyoti. Deepak searches for the Jyoti lookalike and finds the woman was actually Jyoti.

Now Deepak knows that Jyoti was not married to Hukumchand (Roopesh Kumar) and that her father had lied to him. Jyoti had come to Bombay in search of Deepak and tells him that she is the mother of Deepak’s child. Deepak decides to end his marriage with Asha and to tell Asha the truth, but Jyoti insists that Asha would not be able to remarry as society might discard her. Jyoti asks Deepak to act as if they had never met and be a loyal husband of Asha, so that Jyoti can take care of Deepak’s child.

Later, Jyoti becomes a popular dance teacher in her city. Asha decides to learn dancing form Jyoti and they become close friends. Asha discloses that her husband is not loving her and he does not even come close to her. Jyoti visits Asha’s home and learns that Asha is none other than Deepak’s wife. Jyoti tells Deepak to be a true husband to Asha and give Asha the pleasures of married life.

Asha learns that Jyoti and Deepak were lovers before her marriage to Deepak and suspects they are having an affair. Asha found that Deepak and Jyoti are well-wishers of Asha, are innocent and victims of the unpredictable nature of fate. After coming to know the truth, Asha and Jyoti decide to sacrifice their respective lives to let the other live a nice happy married life with Deepak.

Sitting through the movie was not a pain. I loved the way the ladies (over) dressed in silk sarees and had extra long hair plaited in the traditional South Indian Style complete with a garden full of flowers on their hair and heavy jewellery. There was a time in my life when I yearned to have hair like my idol -Rekha- sported in these movies. These movies also showed that Rekha was an artist who followed all instructions of the choreographer and enacted the semi-classical dances that were there in the movie, as can be seen in the song of this movie that is already posted. She also had large eyes that conveyed a variety of emotions.

Today’s song comes towards the end of the movie where we have Asha dressing up Jyoti as a bride and trying to rectify the wrong that fate has delivered on Deepak and his Jyoti (the movies in this genre excelled in naming their characters). We also see that Deepak and Jyoti are not comfortable with this turn of events but Asha prevails on them and we have this Asha Bhonsle play backed song.

I am sure the readers have guessed why I chose a song that has the “oh! so beautiful!” Rekha for today’s post. Yes, she turns a year older today and it has become a compulsion for me that write atleast a small post to wish her.
Wish you a very happy birthday Rekhaji.


Song-Aayi pehli milan ki wo raat (Asha Jyoti)(1984) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

ho o o
kitne saawan pyaase tarse
tabhi suhaagan raat aati hai
aati hai toh
pyaar se mann ka kora aanchal bhar jaati hai
kora aanchal bhar jaati hai ae
pyaase mann pe huyi kya barsaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
yeh hai do saanson ka sangam
apne jiya ko bas mein rakhna
dil ki dhadkan jaaye na thham
kaisi hoti hai
kaisi hoti hai pehli mulaakaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
pyaar se saajan ka mann jeete
wahi dulhan hai yahaan suhaagan
o o o o
kiski jeet huyi re kiski maat
sawere hume batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
